here's a greate quote:

"This vandalism costs companies nearly $2,000 a year per employee --
$15 billion total -- in lost productivity. It forces individual users
to invest in protective software, clogs the Internet, leads to
identity theft, and creates a monumental headache for computer users,
retarding the growth of legitimate commerce."

I like how they go from $2000 per employee to $15billion in total with
out ever stating one source, where they get these numbers from or what
"$15 billion total" means.  Ahh...gotta love Op Ed. news.
